What's Up Doc?

*Stupid Rule Number 35 applies in this segment*

A tooth for an eye?
A team of specialists at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine are the first surgeons in the United States to restore a person's sight by using a tooth. The procedure is formally called modified osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (or MOOKP).

Sharron "Kay" Thornton, 60, went blind nine years ago from a rare disorder called Stevens-Johnson syndrome. The disorder left the surface of her eyes so severely scarred she was legally blind. But doctors determined the inside of her eyes were still functional enough that she might one day see with the help of MOOKP.

The  surface of the eye patient's was totally damaged, having no wetness, no tears, so Dr. Victor L. Perez, the ophthalmologist at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute recreated the environment of the mouth in the eye.

The three-phase operation started with University of Miami dentist, Dr. Yoh Sawatari, who removed a tooth from Thornton's mouth and prepared an implant of her own dental tissue for her most severely damaged eye. The tissue was used to make a new cornea to replace the damaged one.

Doctors then removed a section of Thornton's cheek that would become the soft, mucus tissue around her pupil. Finally, Perez and his team implanted the modified tooth -- which had a hole drilled through the center -- to support a prosthetic lens.

"We use that tooth as a platform to put the optical cylinder into the eye," explained Perez.

Perez said doctors often use less risky and less invasive techniques to replace corneas, but the damage from Thornton's Stevens-Johnson syndrome ruled those out.

Doctors used Thornton's own cheek and tooth tissue she faces less risk that her immune system will attack the tooth and reject the transplant.

Victor Perez said,"If there isn't any infection, I'm optimistic we can preserve at least 20/70 vision for the next 10 years,"

A shot of B-12 for sanity
I heard that before hospitals return homeless people to the streets after treating them for something, they shoot them a shot of vitamin B-12. The reason for this is because homeless people often become malnourished, resulting in their brain chemistry getting out of wack and often they end up going crazy. So the shot of vitamin B-12 (which is good for 30 days,) is actually used to keep the patents from going insane for the next thirty days.
         Don't go having psychiatrist prescribe you any brain poisons. They can turn you into a zombie and you may very well loose the ability to be happy or sad. Feelings are a good thing. They are God given gift and also just a fact of life. The holiday seasons are some trying times for many of us. Don't become a victim of the doctors and drug companies. They just want you to come back every month.

Don't pay any attention to what they are saying on TV about 1 out of 5 people having some kind of mental illness. They just want you to go to some doctor so you can be tricked into thinking you are not happy with yourself. Just go buy some vitamin B-100, or B-12, because 75% of the mental illnesses out there are a result of the lack of vitamin B so go fix yourself.

These places advertising on TV for experimental drugs are about the worst places you can go to. You don't want to be a guinea pig, now do you? They could very well scramble your brain.

Speaking of illness….I happen to think that the state of public heath care in the US is a result of the corporate medical and drug industries making sure that they have a strong market to treat. To treat or to cure? That is the question. If they cured the illness, then they would have fewer patients to treat; now
wouldn't they?

    Well I for one understand the racket that the medical and insurance industries have going on. For one thing; many people are not aware of how the insurance companies buy operations in bulk.
    Say the open heart surgery cost $100,000.00 and the patient is supposed to pay 20% as a deductible. You'd think the insurance company would be footing the bill of $80,000.00, but that isn't so. The insurance company my have bought ten of those operations $400,000.00, but the hospital still sends the patient a bill for $100,000.00 which they think $20,000.00 is their fare share, But the reality is that the patient is actually paying 50% of the operation instead of 20%.

I happen to think that the majority (98%) of psychologist and psychotherapist are nut cases.
If you need someone to talk to, get a dog.  

And get this, many of these doctors use drug cocktails.
The reason for this is that if you treat a patient who has Bipolar Disorder with medicine for Schizophrenia, the Bipolar Disorder will get worse. And if they treat a patient suffering from Schizophrenia with medicine for Bipolar Disorder, the Schizophrenia will get worse.
   I know of a doctor who would prescribe both Lithium and Respridal to a patient that he wasn't sure what he had. But with Lithium for a Bi polar patient and Respridal for his patients, he was sure to make sure the patient had one or the other, and that they would come back every month to talk about the weather and get another prescription. And how much is the office visit worth? A new BMW every year?

12-14-99: In response to the fact that many people end up with drugs that were not meant to be prescribed to them; all because their doctors hand writing wasn't clear enough for the pharmacist to read. I think hand written prescriptions should be a thing of the past.

Pharmacies should only except machine printed orders. The only thing that should be hand written should be the doctor's signature. It is so EZ for a doctor to use a point and click computer program. Any amateur can set up their own pre made perceptions. I think enough mistakes have been done and it should be a doctor's duty to safeguard their patients against it.

I think the idea of hospitals, doctors, and pharmaceutical companies using bar codes is a great idea.

Feb. 20-00: One thing people should consider before have liposuction done. The fact is that thousands of people (About 5,000 per year in the US alone, I think?) end up having strokes because of it. Just one of those things you don't hear about.

12-13-99: Don't pay any attention to what they are saying on TV about 1 out of 5 people having some kind of mental illness. They just want you to go to some doctor so you can be tricked into thinking you are not happy with yourself. Just go buy some vitamin B-100, or B-12, because 75% of the mental illnesses out there are a result of the lack of vitamin B so go fix yourself.
         Don't go having them prescribe you any brain poisons. They will turn you into a zombie and you will loose the ability to be happy or sad. Feelings are a good thing. They are a fact of life. The holiday sessions are some trying times for many of us. Don't become a victim of the drug companies and doctors that want you to come back every month.

These places advertising on TV for experimental drugs are about the worst places you can go to. You don't want to be a guinea pig, now do you? They could very well scramble your brain.

3-1-00: I read somewhere that if you get the new saline solution breast implants it is a 43% chance you'll end up with complications. Not very good odds if you ask me. The chances are even worse for reconstructive surgery.

cat saying I don't know and I don't care

Donating your organs? Beware you may end up being worth more dead than alive.
       I figured I'd tell you a story about my dad's friend who was dead on the operating table for five to ten minutes. All he heard were doctors arguing over his parts. 
    The lesson here is: that the desire of donating your organs is a good thing and something you should inform your next of ken, but putting the fact that you are an organ donor on your driver's license may just make you worth more dead than alive.
   Do I have to say any more?


 Rule Number 80

Beware of Crooked Doctors:
Rule Numbers- 9 & 20

July 8th, 2015:
I saw the show about the Super Bug on PBS last night.
       I think that hospital that had it spreading through their hospital should not even thought about it twice, as to whether or not to admit new patents.
       That was about as wreck-less at that pilot landing a plan on a crowded beach and as Greedy as a doctor prescribe drugs and treatments for cancer to a patent the dose not have cancer.

On that Doctor who lead people to believe they had cancer:
       I wish there was a way he could be tortured the rest of his life .
       Or just better yet just save your money and kill him as soon as possible.
       You can be sure he isn't the only one out there that is doing it.
       I bet most places look at the most profitable way of treating cancer before anything else.
       I think the same thing is going on in the medical profession of Psychiatry. If they are not mentally ill, they will make them that way, or even keep them that way.
       I wouldn't doubt some cops get kick back for filling there beds since a simple 5150 in on a 72 hour evaluation cost tax payers as much as putting them up in a 5 star hotel.

Wouldn't it be nice if having your teeth cleaned didn't hurt so much?
Well:
Trips to the dentist could become less frightening courtesy of researchers at China's HuaZhong University of Science and Technology. They've created a jet of cold plasma by charging helium, oxygen and nitrogen electrons with pulses of electricity.
      The resulting 1.5-in. plasma plume is safe to touch, but can slice the thin cell walls of bacteria.
      Professor XinPei Lu says the "plasma needle" could be used to sterilize equipment or clean teeth. He is also researching its use to unclog arteries.

(Reuters)Cocktails of HIV drugs help patients live an average of 13 years longer -- if they are lucky enough to get them, researchers reported on Thursday.
A person who started taking the drugs at age 20 could, on average, expect to live another 43 years, the researchers report in the Lancet medical journal.

March 8'08ANCHORAGE
— Eli Lilly, the drug maker, could and should have warned physicians as early as 1998 about the link between Zyprexa, its best-selling schizophrenia medicine, and diabetes, an expert witness told jurors Friday in a lawsuit that claims that Zyprexa has caused many mentally ill people to develop diabetes.

Instead, Lilly hid Zyprexa's risks from doctors to protect the drug’s sales, according to the witness, Dr. John Gueriguian.
Lilly waited until 2007 to add strong warnings to Zyprexa’s label to reflect the drug's tendency to cause severe weight gain and blood sugar changes.

Lilly put "profit over concern of the consumer," Dr. Gueriguian said Friday near the end of four hours of testimony.        Zyprexa, a drug for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, is by far Lilly's top-selling product, with worldwide sales of $4.8 billion last year.
